|Give them to me.. NOW!|
For all those who play Dark Eldar, have you ever thought which combination will suit you better? Do you go Eldar primary with Dark Eldar support? Or do you do Dark Eldar with Eldar support. Personally for me, I think Dark Eldar primary is the best way to do it. Here's why..
Dark Eldar gives you access to Poison weapons, something the Eldar will not have. Dark Eldar is also bound to bring more lances; more specifically, moving lances. If you look at Eldar's selection of units, most of them are designed with very specific modes roles in mind. That's why they have Aspect Warriors in the first place! The Elite slot provides you with dedicated CC in the form of Banshees and Striking Scorpions, and powerful anti-tank in the way of Fire Dragons. Fast Attack, I'm god honestly hoping for the Nightwing, or the War Walkers to be moved to FA. For now, Warp Spiders as a big support unit is pretty tempting, but mind you Dark Eldar also has access to Scourges and Reaver Jetbikes.
The big thing that Eldar will bring is the Farseer. It gives you plenty of spells to cast, magic protection (hopefully a 24" Runes of Warding), and access to the Divination lore. Best of all, you take this HQ on a Jetbike and now you can take your scoring Guardian Jetbikes as a bodyguard. This automatically frees some of your Wych slots in exchange for Banshees perhaps. Should the Nightwing make an appearance, DE players might also think about dropping their Voidraven for a Nightspinner in the heavy slot to go with your Ravagers. Should all else fail, you'll always have War Walkers in that slot. I hear they go quite nice with Prescience!
High Elves in May and Eldar in June. Keep an sharp eye on this blog in the next couple of weeks, it will be exploding with info as these are my primary armies. Oh, and also look out for Vampire Counts stuff and a Tau army book review.
